Wetland is the most productive ecosystems in the world. Aquatic plants are vital components for the proper management of wetland ecosystem for biological productivity and support various organisms. In the present study, diversity of flowering plants surrounding the wetlands in Vadodara District was carried out at selected 19 wetlands in 6 talukas.
